The Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Eric Carle
A tiny hero makes a dramatic transformation in this interactive tale that teaches your child a simple science lesson. “In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf. One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and—pop! Out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.” Each day he eats a little something—on Monday, an apple; on Tuesday, two pears—and each meal leaves a hole in the sturdy pages, for smallest fingers to wiggle through as they watch the caterpillar grow larger, build a cocoon and emerge on the final pages as a great, beautiful butterfly.
